Having a good personality can boost your confidence level. Firstly, somewhere our genes play an important role in shaping our personality. The second is, your eating preferences determine how well you feel and how good you look. What you eat and how you eat is all up to you.  It is important to nourish your body from within to look good from outside. Here are some diet tips to nourish your skin, hair, and nails.

Foods for hair growth

Proteins are very much essential for hair growth. Eat a variety of protein-rich food such as eggs, fish, poultry, meat, beans, nuts, and seeds. 

Calcium is found in abundance in dairy food such as milk, yogurt, and cheese. If you are allergic to dairy products, do consume other sources of calcium that include calcium-fortified foods and drinks.

Iron is present in meat, fish, poultry, egg yolks, green leafy vegetables and dried legumes. Eating food rich in iron will help you build hemoglobin, which helps transport oxygen, helping to nourish all the cells of the body.

Foods for healthy skin

70% of the human body is made up of water. Water carries nutrients to every cell in your body and carries away the wastes to be discharged. Having enough water in your body ensures that your skin looks moist and supple. We need to drink sufficient water so as to meet our daily fluid requirements. Water is present in the food we eat and the fluid we drink. For drinking, plain water is preferred over sweetened water as the latter is full of extra calories that come from added sugar. 

Foods for healthy hair and skin

Fruit and vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals, and many beneficial phytochemicals. Most yellow-orange colored fruits contain beta carotene that gets converted into vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for the formation and maintenance of healthy skin and hair.

Vitamin C-rich fruits like guavas, amla, oranges, kiwi fruit, strawberries, peppers, and green leafy vegetables help in wound healing and stimulate the formation of collagen. Many nutrients are found in fruit and vegetables like vitamins A, C, E as well as, many phytochemicals that are powerful antioxidants that protect cells and connective tissues from free radicals.

Try to eat two servings of fruit and two servings of vegetables every day.

Always remember

For healthy skin, hair and nails nourish your body daily with adequate water and a well-balanced diet that meets your daily need for protein, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals. Even if you are dining out, you can make healthy choices over regular foods.
